Today I will be giving a presentation to the MBA and MMIS incoming students about the services provided by Career Services. I will run quickly through the four main areas that we cover as part of career services: 1. Finding Jobs and Internships, 2. Taking Tests and Preparing for Graduate School, 3. Succeed in Your Career, 4. Exploring Majors and Careers.

Exploring Majors and Preparing to Apply to Graduate School doesn’t really apply to these students so I will focus more on the other parts.

EXPLORING CAREERS
For some this may not apply totally, but you should still keep this on your radar. Even if you are with a company you would like to stick with for a while, even if you have a career path in mind, don’t skimp out on this. Take advantage of your student status. Continue to learn about careers and connect with professions that may have insights you could benefit from.

I just finished watching a video at work (actually a group of videos) with my co-workers and others, based on the Designing Your Life book. One of the things that were mentioned was about the incremental changes that must take place in order to get you to a better place in life. What I have chosen to do that I hope to use to make an incremental change in my life (the area of play) is to write more often.

I like to write and I think that I chose to spend my time on other things, thinking that writing will take too much time. But really there are things like this website that really goes against that belief. Also, I think the feeling is that I would do my time-wasters whether or not I do something like writing. But I am trying something different and using this activity to hopefully energize me and give me more time.

I think it is possible for “play” to create more opportunities for being productive rather than taking away time that I could spend in some other way.

I feel like I have the need to create. And I like to create to make a connection. I write and draw to really find something I can connect with and create value in my life and possibly in the life of others.

Other things that would make writing and drawing valuable to me would be for the reasons of gratitude and planning. I might do things like that in my mind, but I feel the need to make it concrete by writing it down and having something physical. This builds my skills, but it also gives me something to remembers.

I have a few fears that have come up recently and one of those is forgetting things that are important. Or things that if I remembered them would make my life more enjoyable.

#I am grateful that Jessica has the opportunity to travel in Africa.
#I am grateful that Jaycee (and Jen and Emily and Ruth and others) are able and willing to help out with the kids.
#I am grateful I have a home and that I have been able to keep the dishes clean.
#I am grateful that Harrison is sleeping a little better at night.
#I am grateful for my co-workers and my boss that I enjoy being with and are all so helpful.
#I am grateful that my boss trusts me with the implementation project I have been working on.

Sometimes I feel like the church is like the children of Israel wandering through the wilderness led by Moses. Not because we are lost, but because we aren’t ready to enter Zion. Some of the things that we bicker about or are bothered by or the way we treat each other is somewhat petty and miss the mark as it relates to what is really important.

Some of the commandments that we are given are given because we aren’t ready for something greater. We are waiting for someone to tell us what to do and what not to do, rather than been enlightened to something greater.

Life is not easy, but there is no point in complaining. I still struggle with doing the right thing, and it’s frustrating. Sometimes I personally feel like one of the children of Israel that can see Zion but more or less makes the choice to wander.

“Not all who wander are lost” is a phrase that is romanticized, but it really could be a bit damning. Those who wander may just not be doing what they need to be doing in order to get to the right place. Some of them are happy in that decision or they may not realize they are lost. But there are those who just aren’t willing to be found.

If people would live their life in accordance to the principles of truth, they will find themselves where they want to be.
